The title alone should make you go

“Music to Slash Your Wrists By” presents the music of premiere composer, lyricist, film scorer and all-around theater artist Vince De Jesus, in an evening of torch, musical ditties and sentimental tunes, at Blacksoup Cafe + Artspace on Saturday, December 5.

Featured guest vocalist is Nar Cabico. Entrance fee of P150 includes one drink, razor blades and calamansi. Show starts at 8 p.m.

Blacksoup Cafe + Artspace is at Unit G, Maginhawa Bldg., 154 Maginhawa St. Sikatuna Village, Quezon City, Philippines. Call 4352549 for more details.


PLUS: One of those ditties to slash your--in this case, better your ex's--wrists by, a haunting song called Ako Lang Ang Nagmahal. Music, lyrics and vocals by Vince himself, whom I also asked for a brief note on how the song came about. Don't listen to him when he says it's a downer. Sometimes, the saddest songs are also the most beautiful (see Help Me Make It Through the Night and I Can't Make You Love Me).

Vince: This is a song I composed way back in 1989 when some of you weren't even born yet. This song came about after my first breakup ever. Yes, produkto ito ng sawing puso. This has been recorded by several recording artists including Miguel Vera, Rachel Alejandro and Manilyn Reynes. At kung sino ka mang pinadugo ang puso ko at naging dahilan kung bakit ko na-compose ang kantang ito noon--salamat sa iyo at may pinagka-kitaan ako kahit iniwan mo ako. Yan ang sweet revenge. Ha ha ha! Ha! Originally, this song only had a verse and a chorus. In 2006 I added the second verse to milk it more. Please, kung medyo mahina ang EQ ninyo don't listen to this. It can be a downer.

I first heard this song in Maalaala Mo Kaya with Keempee De Leon and Manilyn Reynes. Since then, I have been looking for this song parang 7 yrs. na yata or more. I don't know anything about the song but the fact that it did hit me. As in bulls eye! Hahaha. I am looking for this song only with the verse "Siguro nga umasa akong magtatagal." Yun lang ang palatandaan ko na ito ang kantang hinahanap ko. I don't even know the title. And then Nar Cabico, my friend, blogs about the songs he's been listening at one time. One title, Ako lang ang Nagmahal kind of hit me. Sabi niya nga, masakit na kanta. So sabi ko, padinig pag nagkita kami. Months pa ang lumipas ng pinarinig nya sa akin at ng marinig ko napatili tlaga ako sa Kenny Rogers Vito Cruz. The long wait is over!!!!! Ngayon lahat ng nakakarinig ng kanta nadedepress. Hahahaha! Dapat yata magsulat ako ng article about this song. Hahahaha
